It’s shaping up to be one of the biggest events of 2008, and UFC 89 is just getting bigger with the addition of two more bouts to the card, which will take place at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.

In an all-European lightweight showdown, Sweden’s Per Eklund takes on France’s Samy Schiavo, and in a clash between two of the sport’s top young 155-pounders, 24-year old Canadian Sam ‘Hands of Stone’ Stout battles 22-year old Liverpool native Terry Etim.

Tickets for UFC 89 – which is headlined by the middleweight war between Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping and Chris ‘The Crippler’ Leben – are on sale now. The card will be televised in the United States on Spike TV at 9pm ET / PT.
